I found a smoking deal on an original Root Beer Salsa Vaya on CL (half of new). From talking with the previous owner and looking the bike over, I doubt it has more than a half a dozen rides on it. He did say that he had it on a trainer. The Root Beer Metallic paint is beautiful. The 700x42 Conti's look like they barely touched asphalt.
The only gotcha . . . bent RD hanger (which is causing some shifting issues). Luckily the frame is steel so it should be easy enough to straighten out. For $850, I can't complain. LBS will probably charge $50 to fix.
I do need to get a new Brooks. The B17 on my Cross Check is black and just doesn't match. I am thinking B17 Imperial, but can't decide between Antique Brown and Honey.
I call it the Super Deluxe Vista Cruiser. Rides like a Cadillac (as my dad would always say). I have never had STIs before, I'll see if they grow on me. I was going to go with Woodchipper bars, but I am liking the Bell Lap so far (much better than traditional drops).
